    D. adelae - some pics of the species

    Leaf cuttings laid under some live sphagnum moss. Buds usually start appearing on the leaves in less than two weeks.


    Plantlets from leaf cuttings. I was careless and let the media turn mouldy. But somehow the plantlets still seem quite happy.


    New plants that are about 1"-2" across and ready to be potted up.


    Plants in higher light levels have red colouration on the main veins and tentacles. Leaves are narrower.


    Plants in lower light levels are green with red tentacles. Leaves are broader.


    Established plants growing in an undrained container.

    Nice pictures. Do you have a problem with them spreading to other pots?

    Hi, I am not quite sure what you mean.

    The species doesn't flower in my growing conditions so it stays where it grows. Plantlets pop up in the pot from the roots of mature plants but both leaf and root cuttings strike as easily for me.

    Oddly enough, in late winter, this does flower, right on a window sill.

    I've never gotten them to flower. Too hot here, I suppose.

    Maybe. Try shading them a bit next winter.
